Earlier this week, I had the chance to watch Born To Love You, another great Tagalog romantic comedy movie directed by Jerome Chavez Pobocan and produced by Star Cinema Productions. It was released in theaters all over the Philippines on 30 May 2012 and in some parts of the U.S. on 22 June. The movie received impressive ratings and positive reviews.
Born To Love You stars award-winning actor Coco Martin and the singer-actress Angeline Quinto. I have heard of Martin through friends who adore him but Quinto, I have no idea who she is. Because I haven’t seen it’s trailer nor heard anything about this film earlier, it is just but right to not set the bar too high.
Having said that, Born To Love You came as a huge surprise. The connection between Martin and Quinto was there. The two clicked! The story is brilliant, unique and fresh. Martin’s acting is superb while Quinto’s not as superb as Martin but it’s more than okay. Knowing that it’s her first acting gig, Quinto has done a fantastic job.
If you haven’t seen Born To Love You yet, find time to do so. I promise, you will not be disappointed. You’ll love every second watching these two on the screen.
Born To Love You --- two thumbs up from me!
